Default They're still out there

Had a fella call me and said his brother passed, heard from the Wisconsin v8 chapter that I'm in Arizona, wanted to sell me the brothers 42 Ford. I put the trailer on, drove to Cave Creek, extracted the car which sat since 92, Its cleaned up, put a battery in, fired right up.Origional factory paint, 65K miles.
Heres some photos,
Merry Christmas, John Stimac

John,
Nice car! 42’s are rather rare due to low production numbers.

Nice car, I have never liked the 42 grille, wasn't too fond of the 41 grille either. But that is a very nice car

Wow, that car cleaned up nice! And to think that there are poor, sad mixed-up individuals out there who prefer to leave a nice car dirty!

OK enough about the wonderful 42 extracted from it's long sleep. I want to know about the young lady waxing on the car. How did you manage to get someone so young to admire an old Ford? I am jealous of you and I have hope that someone will give our flatty's some attention when we are gone.
